As Orange County prepares for primary elections on May 8, the Orange County Board of Elections launched its voter-education campaign this week.
The Board of Elections will host its second voter education session on Tuesday, March 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Passmore Senior Center in Hillsborough.
The campaign is designed to inform Orange County residents about the election calendar, provide residents with sample ballots and register potential voters. The information session will also display district maps to inform residents about changes to district lines for the State House of Representatives.
Orange County Board of Elections Director Rachel Raper said she encourages voters to visit the Board of Elections website to educate themselves about the district changes, and to visit the candidates’ websites to learn more about the individuals running for office.
“I always tell people to not be shy about contacting candidates and contacting your representatives and engage them to see how they feel about certain topics that are important to you,” Raper said.
